YEAR 6: 2015-2017

Summer 2- The Final Term

 

Dear Parents/Carers

 

Welcome to Summer 2, this promises to be a fun filled, exciting and an emotional end to your child's time at Phoenix. In this letter I will explain what we have planned for the forthcoming  term.

 

Romeo & Juliet 

 

As you will be aware we have started practising our end of year performance. The children will be practising their parts, singing, preparing the set and costumes. This will take a lot of effort and hard work from the whole class. Please visit the school website for the songs that your child will be singing and also help them to practise their lines. The performance will take place during the last week on Tuesday 18th July at 9:15am we hope you will be able to join us to celebrate the class' hard work. There will also be a leavers assembly on Thursday 20th at 9:00, and finally we will have our prize giving awards ceremony on Friday the 21st at 9:00am.

 

The fiver challenge

 

An exciting enterprise challenge will be taking place throughout the half term. In partnership with Year 3 children , your children will be given five whole English pound and create a scheme to create profit. We are excited to see how the children create their own mini business empires.

 

Thematic: Vikings

 

As you will be aware the children took their SATS tests last term. We focussed on Maths, English and Reading heavily. Which meant that we are now able to focus on our thematic work. We will focus on the Vikings and the impact they have on the United Kingdom.

 

Philosophy for Children

 

The children will be undergoing a number of philosophy for children investigations on some pertinent issues, especially those being raise by the current climate. 

 

Sex And Relationship Education 

 

The children will be undertaking sex and relationship education lessons, I will send a letter before these lessons asking for your permission and providing you with an opportunity to view to resources we will be using.

 

Trips

 

We have a number of trips planned and will provide letters with further details in the coming weeks. Including our attendance reward from the Summer 1 Term. Well Done Year 6!

 

Thank you for all your support throughout the course of this year.

A summary of Autumn 1 in Year 6

 

Dear Parents/Carers,

 

Welcome to Year 6, your children are about to enter their final year of primary school and the end of their journey at Phoenix. As you are aware this year is very important year for your child as they will sit their SATS tests at the end of the year. These will give an indication to progress your child has made during their time at Phoenix. However, these tests do not determine, define or describe the abilities that your child has. They are all talented in so many ways. Please do not put your child under unnecessary pressure. As long as the children read every evening, complete homework when set and give 100% when in the classroom they will enjoy their year and succeed.

 

In the next part of this leaflet I will give a brief overview of what your child will be learning during this first half term.

 

English

 

 

Year 6 will start this term by studying Roahl Dahl's Danny Champion of the World. The children will read parts of the book and create their own stop animation videos with an audio description they have written. Also the children will write own recounts of the a key event in the story.

 

A Monster Calls

 

This half term out English will be based around the novel A Monster Calls. The children will study the characters write diary entries, fantasy stories, poetry, biographies and a short story based upon the main theme of the book. This novel is hugely moving and a fantastic read I advise you to get a copy

to read along with the class.

 

Maths

 

This term the children will be working on place value while also practising calculation methods for the four operations.  The class will then apply these to problems. We will be focussing on improving the class's times tables knowledge during the half term,  so please practise these at home.

 

Theme

 

A History of Medicine: providing a link to our English topic this term we will study the evolution of medicine focusing on key areas of study such as Ancient Greek Medicine, Medieval surgery,The Great Plague andMedical developments in the 19th and 20th century.

 

We also be using our whole school focus of global learning to look at access to medicine worldwide and the effect this has on the world and links to the Global Goals.

 

Science

 

Animals including Humans.

Mrs Irwin will be leading science in Year 6 this year. The class will be able to:

Describe how living things are classified into broad groups according to common observable characteristics and based on similarities and differences, including micro- organisms, plants and animals 

Give reasons for classifying plants and animals based on specific characteristics. 

 

 

RE

 

We will be examining faiths originating from Asia this term starting with a focus of on Sikhism.

 

Homework will be given on a Wednesday and be expected back the following Wednesday. 

 

Please encourage your child to read every night.

 

We will also be holding a Parent Open afternoon on Thursday 29th of September, we hope to see you all there to see  how and what  your child is learning at Phoenix.

 

Many Thanks,

 

Mr Gobey, Mrs Irwin and Miss Evans

Samar & Mrs Irwin showing Y6 how they pray.

One surprising fact we learnt - even though Samar's first language is Urdu (he is from Pakistan), he must recite his prayers in Arabic.

We reminded ourselves about LENT; a journey to meet, get to know and love God. We talked about not always achieving our goals but remembered that God will see us trying and will help us to start again!

Mahashivaratri Assembly

This week's 'OuR' time in Y6

We heard about a little girl who gave up her birthday weekend to go to South Carolina, USA (travelling hundred's of miles from the north) with money and donations she had collected - including her own Christmas presents -for the families who had been badly affected by recent flooding. She encouraged other children to donate at least one of their toys to the children in Columbia.

"We have started to rebuild by the grace of volunteers!" said one grateful victim.

We also heard about 'The Hug Lady'. For many years, she has hugged more than half-a-million departing or returning soldiers. She did it because she wanted them to know that God would take care of them!
